Packers place Kevin King on IR for the second straight season, per report

Packers place Kevin King on IR for the second straight season, per report

The Packers placed their top pick from 2017 and a backup running back on injured reserve and claimed Fadol Brown and Natrell Jamerson to replace them.

NFL power rankings, Week 14: Packers slide continues

Whether the...

Though McCarthy likely sealed his fate weeks earlier, losing to one of the worst teams in the NFL apparently proved too ignominious for Packers brass to bear. The team announced the decision to fire their...
